Sports Injuries

For people who participate in sports, whether it be team sports or individual sports, sports injuries can be common. Whether it is young children playing kickball in the schoolyard or professional athletes competing in city arenas, nobody is immune to sports injuries.

One question that many athletes ask, and parents of young athletes ask, is when is a sports injury cause for a possible lawsuit?

For school children most parents sign forms releasing schools from any liability when their child incurs a sports injury while playing a school sport. There can, however, be exceptions to this.

If a child suffers a sports injury due to gross negligence by the school, such as if the school makes the child play a sport in an unsafe area or a coach or teacher makes a child keep playing a sport even if the child has complained of pain, then the school may still be liable for any sports injuries. If parents believe that gross negligence on the part of the school is responsible for their child's injury, they may want to consult with a lawyer.

For sports such as skiing, liability for an injury can be more complicated. A ski resort is not liable if a skier suffers an injury due to normal skiing activities in a designated skiing area. The resort may be liable, however, if an area where people shouldn't ski is not clearly marked as off limits, or the injury occurs because of faulty resort equipment, such as a broken ski lift. When an injury occurs because of faulty ski boots, skis, or other personal ski equipment, the manufacturer of the faulty equipment may be liable as in any other regular products liability case, depending on how new the equipment is or any guarantees that may come with the equipment.

Sports injuries can be a very gray area when it comes to legal liability. Any disregard for safety guidelines or the rules of a sport by a participant most likely means that any injury that occurs is the fault of the participant. Sports injuries that occur because a member of an opposing team uses excessive force that is meant to cause bodily harm can mean legal action against the protagonist. Even here, there may be exceptions or gray areas. In sports such as ice hockey or boxing, injuries are an everyday occurrence, and are usually expected, so defining liability for sports injuries in these sports could be extremely hard to do.
